He did not have it easy then against Al Hilal, who even went ahead on the scoreboard through Salem Al Dawasari and could not confirm the victory until the last stage. He equalized the match at the beginning of the second half for the team led by the Portuguese Jorge Jesus the Uruguayan Giorgian de Arrascaeta and confirmed the comeback at the end Bruno Henrique and Ali Hadi Al-Bulaihi in own goal.
On this occasion both teams will meet at the Ibn Tattouta stadium in Tangier starting at 2:00 p.m. (Peruvian time), with arbitration by Romanian Istvan Kovacs.

The powerful roster of Flamengo encourages more than one with the possibility of breaking the European dominance in the competition, won since 2013 by representatives of the ‘Old Continent’.
The work, however, is not easy, as the Brazilians have found it difficult to engage the approaches of Pereira, made official in December replacing Dorival Júnior, with whom they conquered the Libertadores and the Copa do Brasil last year.
Even so, they trust in the strength of their squad, in which local figures such as David Luiz, Filipe Luís, Gerson, Everton Ribeiro, “Gabigol” and Pedro parade, as well as foreigners such as the Uruguayan Giorgian de Arrascaeta or the Chilean Arturo Vidal.
